Although called a half-marathon, Le Demi-Marathon des Altitudes should be considered a full marathon because we must not underestimate this mountainous territory.  With a circuit resembling that of the Mont Albert Marathon, you will go up Mont-Olivine and then go on to the Mont Albert summit.  A two for one that should make you proud of yourself.
